CLEVELAND -- Mark Redman pitched a career-best four-hitter and beat the Cleveland Indians for the second time in a week, leading the Detroit Tigers to a 4-1 win Monday.

Redman (2-5) mixed a few slow breaking pitches in with his fastball and improved to 4-1 with a 2.27 ERA in five career starts against Cleveland.

He allowed just Ellis Burks' second-inning homer, a two-out single to Ricky Gutierrez in the fifth and a pair of singles in the ninth.

Damian Jackson hit a two-run homer off Danys Baez (4-4) as the Tigers snapped Cleveland's three-game winning streak and won their fourth straight over the Indians, who have scored only 16 runs in their last seven games.

TORONTO -- Nomar Garciaparra homered and drove in three runs, and Jason Varitek also had three RBIs as Boston sent Toronto to its fourth straight loss and sixth in seven games.
